BMR,Friday's MemeSince there are a few Friday Meme’s that I want to participate in I have decided to post them all in one post.

Murder most curious

Jenny Weston moves home to Bear Falls, Michigan to nurse her bruised ego back to health after a bitter divorce. But the idyllic vision of her charming hometown crumbles when her mother’s little library is destroyed.

The next door neighbor, Zoe Zola, a little person and Lewis Carroll enthusiast, suspects local curmudgeon Adam Cane, but when he’s suddenly found dead in Zoe’s fairy garden, all roads lead back to her. Jenny, however, believes Zoe innocent, so the two women team up to find the true culprit, investigating the richest family in Bear Falls, interrogating a few odd townspeople and delving into old, hidden transgressions–until another body turns up.

Inspired by Alice in Wonderland, Elizabeth Kane Buzzelli’s quaint and compelling series debut A Most Curious Murder will delight cozy mystery readers new and old.

So this is one of my next reads, and I am a little nervous becauseย I didn’t notice the Alice in Wonderland part when I first grabbed it. I am not a fan of Wonderland, so fingers crossed I will enjoy it. ๐Ÿ™‚

“Oh dear,” said a little voice from behind Jenny Weston, who knelt in the wet grass, in drizzling rain, early morning light making long shadows of the destruction around her.

“‘Like jars of strawberry jam.’ That’s from Alice in Wonderland, you know. But everyone knows that,” the voice, belonging to a little girl, said.

“Go away,” Jenny mumbled. She wished the kid would leave her alone to face the ruin of her mother’s Little Library by herself.

Curious about what her Little Library was that got ruined. Doesn’t sound like an actual library, so hmmm. ๐Ÿ™‚

Friday 56

The Friday 56 is hosted by Freda @ Freda’s Voice. It’s like Tuesday ย Teaser but ย you have a specific place in your read that you have to turn in your read (page 56 or 56%) toย get your teaser.

Zoe stuck a finger into the air. “As I remember, I stepped on a roll of duct tape on Aaron’s floor when we found his body. You remember, don’t you, Jenny?” Jenny shook her head. “With a body and all that dog crap on the floor, I wasn’t watching out for duct tape.”

I am with Jenny with a body and dog crap on the floor I wouldn’t be looking out for duct tape…lol.

book blogger hop

Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. ย Each week we are asked a question to answer so it reminds me a bit of FF and so I thought it made a good fit to my other Friday Memes.

Do you always put a book cover in your posts when you are mentioning books or just text?

I am a visual person, and a cover judge, yes I am…lol. So I must see a cover and it drives me crazy when I check out a review or any post talking about the book and I don’t see a cover. So, of course, I always post a cover of the book I am talking about. If ย it’s a series then I at least post the first book in the series.

    I really enjoyed this one! It’s fun though I about cried with the description of the destruction of the Little Library (it’s a box where people put books and you can get one out for free with the understanding that you bring it back or replace it with a book). I hope you enjoy it!

    • Stormi

      I thought that might be what the box was, and how horrible for someone to come and bust it up. ๐Ÿ™

  2. Barb (boxermommyreads)

    Sad to say but I find it hard not to judge a book by its cover. And yes, I have been pretty let down doing so at times and am always afraid I will miss some great, hidden gem.

    • Stormi

      It so is and sometimes I get disappointed when the book under the cool cover just doesn’t live up to the cover…lol.

    the BBC version of Pride and Prejudice is probably my favorite book-to-movie adaptation as well. I’m also a visual person and if I’m to remember a particular book so I can look for it, I really need to be able to see the cover. And yes, I judge books by their cover too.

    • Stormi

      Yep it’s a good one. ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s hard not to judge by a cover. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Anne@Headfullofbooks

    Sounds humorous. “Dog Crap” ugh. I also like the two movies your highlighted. I wish that the world would do a new Persuasion, the one you highlighted seems dated and the newer version cuts out too much of the story and tries to cover everything with the music. Gr.r.r

    My Friday Quotes

    • Stormi

      Yeah, I am hoping it’s a funny one. ๐Ÿ™‚ I love this version of Persuasion because I am a fan of Ciaran Hinds who played Capt. Wentworth, but if they could find a good replacement I would watch it. I wasn’t real fond of the newer version either.

  5. Heather Fowler

    Give me back my brain! While I’m not a fan or P&P the book, I LURVE the mini-series with Colin Firth! The best version by far, imo!

      Huge Colin Firth fan here so, of course, it is my favorite, though I have watched about ever version from the 1940’s to the newest one…lol. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. kimbacaffeinate

    I want to see the cover and synopsis when I read the review. I also like to know if it is part of a series etc. P&P is a favorite of mine Stormi!

  7. Literary Feline

    That’s my favorite version of Pride and Prejudice too. ๐Ÿ™‚ I love the cover of A Most Curious Murder. I think I’d like that one! I judge books by their cover, and so include covers with my reviews. I hope you’ve had a good weekend!

  8. Alison Can Read

    I can’t believe I didn’t think of the BBC Pride and Prejudice. Of course! I also love the one with Keira Knightley. It’s wonderful in a different way.
